Payment for the Spring 2014 semester is January 7, 2014 by 6:00 PM.
Students must have financial aid posted to their account, a payment plan established, or their account paid in full to avoid being dropped for non-payment.
After payment due date, January 7, 2014, students who register by each Friday must pay in full or set up the payment plan using E-Cashier by 6:00 p.m. the following Monday, or they will be dropped from their classes.

Payment Methods
Cash, check, certified funds, and all major credit cards are accepted forms of payment.
Payment Plans are available online.

Third Party Payee:
If a third party (employer or a government agency) will be paying tuition and fees on behalf of a student directly to NWACC, a letter of authorization to invoice the employer or agency must be received in the Treasurer's Office by the student's published payment due date. Any part of the tuition and fees not covered by the third party must also be paid by the published payment due date. The Treasurer's Office must have a letter of authorization to invoice the employer or agency for each semester. Note: An individual may not be invoiced as a third party.

The letter of authorization to invoice should contain the following:
  ·   Student's name
  ·   Student's social security number or student ID number
  ·   Third party name and address (letterhead is sufficient)
  ·   Detail of covered expenses (tuition, fees, etc.) Maximum dollar amount
  ·   Semester covered by third party
If the letter of authorization is not received by the published payment due date, the student will be responsible for the balance in full. Any charges not approved or paid by the third party will be placed back onto student's account, as all charges are the responsibility of the student.
